The sixth-seeded Musketeers have only two seniors on scholarship. Their inexperience...

Villanova-Xavier Preview

Villanova is on the verge of repeating as Big East regular-season champions. Wrapping it up as quickly as possible might be tough against an opponent that also has plenty to play for. Xavier already has four wins over Top 25 foes but earning one Saturday over the sixth-ranked Wildcats would certainly be the most meaningful to its NCAA tournament hopes, not to mention a great way...

Dee Davis steps up biggest as Xavier edges UC

CINCINNATI -- Chris Mack called the Skyline Crosstown Shootout a "players' game" this week.

It was going to come down to players making plays at the right time...

Crosstown Shootout Preview: Cincinnati Bearcats vs Xavier Musketeers

Tonight at 7 eastern, the 82nd Crosstown Shootout will tip off.
